Nisha Katona’s burgeoning chain has grown from its Pool base to number 12 outposts in total and is finally eyeing up a London opening – in Fitzrovia, on the former site of Côte Brasserie. Reporters “absolutely adore” its “Indian street food with a UK twist” (featuring “lovely, tasty and original flavours”, and served in tiffins), abetted by “good cocktails”.

“Liverpool’s answer to London’s Dishoom” – Nisha Katona’s Indian street-food concept, “in the heart of the city”, has really nailed it, delivering “small sharing helpings of Mumbai-style street food”, alongside “yumblelicious” cocktails, served “by welcoming and knowledgeable staff” in a “modern and individual setting” (albeit one now being replicated around the country). Top Tip – “the always-good tiffin box option is the best”.

“I have not met anyone who has been who hasn’t raved!” – ex-barrister, Nisha Katona’s “trendily located” street food venture is “a really good new wave Indian” and has “succeeded in spades” in ‘The Pool’, providing “fresh”, “punchy” dishes that are “incredibly varied in flavour, and variety” in an environment that’s “always full and buzzing”, alongside some “very interesting cocktails”. “No booking, so in the evenings you need to put your name on the list and go for a drink until your table is ready”. Top Tip: “take pot luck and order the tiffin box where the chef chooses what you get”. (This was her initial branch – she’s expanded her “Dishoom of the North West” to other sites and cities now).

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
